Ummm. The fire?

OK. I’ll admit it, I’m not used to seeing fires at a wedding! There you have it. However, at the wedding of Raj and Parthavi, there was plenty of fire to be had. In fact, I think that the priest had a “thing” for fire. The larger the fire got, the more “ceremonial” oil that he added to it. From my vantage point in the front row, I had a good view of the bride & groom as well as…

I’m trying a new subscribe to comments plug-in because the one that I was using, Subscribe to Comments Reloaded, just got updated and crashed the site. Not cool. Anyway, this new one is called Postmatic and seems to be pretty cool. It will allow you to reply to comments that you subscribed to from your e-mail. No need to visit the site to reply. Please give it a try and let me know how it works out, por favor (please)…

Elephants, like anyone else, have those hard to reach places when taking a shower or bath. I figured that I’d be a friendly sort and give her a hand, wash those difficult to get to places. She, I suppose, decided to return the favor and I was not on one of those hard-to-get-to places. 🙂 I don’t know if elephants can indeed smile, but I could swear that she was smiling and getting a certain amount of joy out of…

Vanessa and I started the new year off right, in my opinion, with a trip to Kiawah Island, SC for a little beach time. Naturally, on the way, we stopped at Hyman’s for my crispy flounder dish and their ever so tempting, Carolina Delight (Grit cakes covered with shrimp and a tasty, creamy sauce). 🙂 We arrived at night, after sunset, on the 1/1/2016, but gave the sunset a shot on 1/2/2016 and were treated to a bit of music. There…

Not a whole lot to say here. I went on a boat ride to a small island in Chilika Lake, a HUGE brackish water lagoon, measuring some 1100 km2 and 41 miles on one side! This island had a small temple, a few shops, and a few people. There wasn’t a whole lot to see, but it was nice to go for a ride. As I was departing, to get back in the boat, I met these kids and even…

Obviously, this goat needs no directions on how to find food! On the way back from Golpapur, on the Bay of Bengal, we arrived in the city of Bhubaneswar, which is where Raj’s house is located. When we got there, the driver stopped several times to ask people for directions on how to get to the hotel. He was speaking in his native language of Odia, but it was clear that he was asking and receiving directions. He’d stop at…
